Main slide creeping out driving

We have a 2015 Cedar Creek 33RL 5th wheel. Our last trip we noticed the main slide moved out while driving about 2 inches. After sucking it back in it eventually crept out again. I see a very small amount oil residue under the pump by the reservoir but really cant see where it maybe coming from.

Anyone else have any ideas what may have started to happen?

I assume it has a hydraulic cylinder that moves the slide? Im not an rv tech but was a Caterpillar hydraulic troubleshooter for years. To me it sounds like your cylinder has an external leak. Either where a line connects or from the packing around the rod. It builds pressure when you suck the slide in but bleeds off due to the leak and the slide moves out.
